The state was intended to govern the entire world, but ultimately Kuvira surrendered herself after coming to a realization. If it had been succesful, the United States of Earth, would be a world government, with a democratically elected President as its leader.
Though the Earth Empire's victory in the conquest of the world was seemingly inevitable, Laghima surrendered by her own will. Five days after the armistice, the Great Concordance was signed, returning the world to a state of peace and dissolving the Earth Empire.
World domination as a primary goal has never been the official intention of any known nation prior to the establishment of the USE. Various known historical figures such as Genghis Khan and Céline I of Valence have boasted about their plans for world conquest, though no person ever came close to conquering the world.
The United Nations were founded in 1984, by a council consisting of every sovereign nation in the world, on the suggestion of the United Republican politician Kuvira Laghima. Prior to the establishment of the organization, several nations felt the need of an organization where nations could set aside their differences and talk peacefully, yet no concrete plans had been made. Some were skeptical about Laghima's motivations behind such a move. At first, Laghima did not intend to establish a world government, yet when she realized the United Nations were less effective than she had hoped for, she came to believe uniting the world would serve humanity best to promoto equality, liberty and harmony.
Election of Laghima as President
In 1989, President Sorghaghtani Bolormaa died from a cardiac arrest, and an emergency election was to be held. Kuvira Laghima, one of the most influential politicians in the nations, announced her candidacy, to the shock of many. Considered too young and inexperienced by the wealthier population, Sandra Ascalon emerged as the front-runner of the opposition. Despite Ascalon's grand campaign, she was defeated by Laghima, who was elected President. Promising to lead the nation to greatness, Laghima set out to fulfill her goals.

As her support grew, those who opposed Laghima was increasingly seen as "deviants" by the population. Ascalon, continued to insist Laghima was hiding a sinister plan.
